Dresden’s Museumsverband offers an exceptional art and cultural landscape where one is guaranteed to discover the unknown. Combining art and cultural treasures from a courtly, royal collecting tradition and valuable civil collections, Dresden’s museum landscape stands out due to showcasing many exhibitions in unique architectonic ensembles.

“We are the museums with a wow effect. I continually meet guests in our houses who are enthused about the fact that they would have never imagined to find such treasures in our museums.They make surprising discoveries and learn about the unknown,”Dr. Gisbert Porstmann, director of Dresden’s Museumsverband, explains. Dresden’s Museumsverband unites the city museum, a museum of technology, the municipal art museum and five smaller houses which pose as important remembrance places for significant people.
